Join naturalist and MPF technical advisor Jeff Cantrell for a free MPF in-the-field program on the nesting bird ecology of this National Audubon designated IBA (Important Bird Area). The group should be rewarded with views of prairie warblers, chats, tanagers, field sparrows and much more.  We will take special notice to the structure of the habitat and all factors affecting birdlife.This will be approximately a 2 ½ mile hike on uneven terrain with a moderate to difficult climb with exposed rocks and roots. However, the wildflowers make up for the climb. Information will follow registration; class is limited to 18 adults. To register or more information contact Jeff at [email protected] or 417-629-3423.
